Gum recession is painful, and what’s worse is that it’s irreversible. One way to avoid worsening gum recession is by using the Ci Miclean Single Tuft Toothbrush. This uniquely shaped toothbrush is designed to help clean receding gums and dentures effectively and thoroughly to avoid plaque buildup or gum disease.
If your oral care routine hurts your teeth, then it’s time to reconsider the type of toothbrush you use. The safest, no-frills choice for brushing is with a soft-bristled toothbrush like this one from Systema. The bristles are gentle on the gums, yet capable of thoroughly cleaning the spaces between your teeth to eliminate plaque and bacteria.
If you want gleaming white teeth, look no further! With Philips’ most advanced model yet, the HX9924, your oral health is in good hands. It comes with four different brush-heads designed to tackle different oral health problems such as plaque, gum disease, bad breath or stained teeth.
That’s not all, it even has a built-in pressure sensor, a smart location sensor and TouchUp sensor which is linked to your app-connected toothbrush. These sensors work hand in hand to keep track of your oral hygiene by coaching and tracking which areas require more brushing or less pressure through the Philips Sonicare App.
Gum disease is commonly caused by poor oral hygiene, smoking and plaque buildup. Hence why it’s important to pick the right toothbrush that will properly remove plaque and bacteria, especially at the tight ends of your teeth.
